yes, and striaghtforward answers for a forum (other than coporate ones and serious ones)(this site isnt so serious) only arent good. there's no life on it.
I have also changed my forum style the way I run it on my archstone forums. I made it more open styled but more strict. I am expressily strict on the apartments staff. they are premitted to post and will get moderation powers, but not be able to take over the forum. if I catch them doing so, they will have thier moderation status removed and a call will be made to the location.
No flaming is tolerated whatsoever, most certainly to archstone staff.
I wont mind the occiasional lolz and yayas and such, but overloading on there isnt good but it dont really hurt anything, now, excessive, (as in 20 posts in a row) is going to be deleted.
arguments are not tolareated at my forums.
